Last blog we were n Dubai with these fine gents . . .
So then, once home, jet lag set in. I hadn't fully un-jet-lagged from Singapore, when I flew to Chicago to yuk it up, then in less than a week to Dubia, as seen here and here and here. However, I was cheered by these beautiful bowls I brought back with me . . .
I also burned some incense from the middle east, but I think I did it wrong. Luckily nothing caught on fire . . .
Despite all my travels across the continent and the world, I actually do do (oooh, you said "do do") school visits in my home state! What? You don't believe me? Well here's proof . . .
That's right, I was at Hollow Hills Fundamental School in Simi Valley, CA . . .
We set up in the multi-purpose room . . .
While I was checking the mic, Peepy did some exploring . . .
The assemblies went great . . .
Later, I did a writing workshop for some of the 6th graders. Here they are. Wait, here are some 6th graders, a bear, and teacher Holly Dye with me. Can you tell which is which?
After our visit, PTA mom Sonya Zavala presented with Peepy with a gift basket!!!
In other news, at her urging (insistence) Peepy has asked me to update her web page. Now you can see some of the fabulous place she's visited, like these . . .

Is that cool, or what? How surreal for the students!
